IGN: Time Crisis: Razing Storm Review

Even though Time Crisis: Razing Storm features three different on-rails shooters, the content in this package isn't worth checking out. All three games are embarrassingly short, there's little replay value in the campaigns, and the main story mode of Razing Storm is painful to play with a Move controller. Leave this one on the shelf, because no one should have to be this frustrated at something with Terror Bites in it.

Presentation - 5.5
Graphics - 6.5
Sound - 5.0
Gameplay - 4.0
Lasting Appeal - 3.5
Overall -

ign is in need of some hits

AntoineDodson2967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

No actually I played this game at Gamescom this year. Although a 4 is low (I would give it a 5) this score represents the quality of the game. It's terrible and not that fun to play really :\

TheBlackSmoke2967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

What where they expecting?, its a fricken on-rails light gun game, and that's what they got.

edit: complaining about longevity and depth for an arcade light gun game is ridiculous, its like penalizing madden for poor narrative. These type of games are all about the score chase, if you bought it expecting more than you are very misinformed. Im sure at half the price the score would magically rise exponentially.

-Alpha2967d ago

The only reason this got hype was the Move integration.

Previous Time Crisis games have gotten mediocre scores so I wasn't expecting much for this one.

NecrumSlavery2967d ago

I played the demo and the gameplay isnt a 4, its 7. I didnt like holding to pull out of cover or vice a versa like ti has it, but it works very well. and that warrants a slightly better point

ChronoJoe2967d ago

lmao there time crisis 4 review


Razing Storm has 4 on the disc. So that debunks this review or reviewer, pretty much. Maybe they could've got away with giving it a 7, saying it didn't age well - but 4 is ridiculous.

take that ign i give it a 8 40$ 3 games and a lot of fun ...... i cant wait for kinect reviews hhhhmmm are the waiting for embargo or checks to clear and im just being smart im still getting the kinect too

Tapewurm2965d ago (Edited 2965d ago )

What gives....???
I have been playing this game and having a blast.... it is accurate and the game is a lot of you get 3 games in one (and the actual game Razing Storm has different modes that make it a value in arcade mode...a storymode, a sentry mode-think prison guard sniper-, and an online competitive mode as well as rankings)....for the price and quality of games you are getting with this, the review is complete BS.... it's not the be all, end all game of the future, but it is a really fun arcade-style shooting experience....definitely deserves higher than a 4. More in the vein of 7 and 8. My kids and I love it....been playing this and The Shoot a lot over the past few days and have no regrets for purchasing it.

Never tried this game with move..doesnt sound that good, I sill like "The Shoot" better but thats just an opinion.

Bell Boy2967d ago

How can you like The Shoot better if you have not tried Time Crisis Razing Storm?

Just saying!

Motorola2966d ago

Never tried with Move, tried with DS3

Dylantalon12967d ago

i have this game and its really good so i dont understand igns score. i think they are reviewing games on ps3 based on the merits of the top ps3 exclusives because this game is good but doesnt look as good as killzone 2 or uncharted 2.

ps. the talon stands for talented

kissmeimgreek2967d ago

Its their opinion. Most reviewers are giving it 5's to 7's so this seems fair to me. I would never buy a game (even an on rails game) if i can beat it in under an hour.

ps. no one cares what the talon stands for.

Bell Boy2967d ago

I could suggest a conspiracy in that Kinect is just about to launch and it may not be in certain parties interests to give MOVE exclusives high scores.

But then nothing so underhand could possibly take place could it!

Lekumkee2967d ago

I don't give a f*ck what the score is, I'm still buying this with the gun attachment.

Apocalypse Shadow2967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

virtua cop
time crisis
house of the dead
la machine guns

they are SHORT games.they are for quick shooting fun and jumping's definitely not sony AAA level.but then,it's NOT $60 dollars and comes with multiple least a *6 or *7.

can't wait for them kinect reviews and see how IGN rates them....

TheBlackSmoke2967d ago

Oh hey, Im gonna give street fighter IV a 2/10 because I can beat arcade mode in 10 mins.

Bell Boy2967d ago

Ever thought of getting into game should do very well

Bass_fisherman2967d ago

IGN doesnt deserve any attention from gamers in my opinion.
